Syllabus
Eagle Crag is a 16.2 mile round trip hike. Located 25 miles east-northeast of Oceanside California. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. May and October are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


Overview: This hike was intended solely as a practice run for upcoming events. Distance and terrain were the only factors influencing the choice. Scenery wasn't spectacular although there was a good variety of wildlife noted (Deer, Horned Toad Lizards, Hawks). LOTS of Poison Oak noted as well; trail was blocked by thick growth preventing ready access to Eagle Crag (approx 1 mi from objective). Last 1/2 mile back to TH was VERY hot (full sun, steep incline). This would be a nice trail to hike in the Autumn, Winter or Spring months...
